Episode 33: Visionary Art

Posted by John OConnell on

Ever since visiting Baltimore's American Visionary Art Museum, I've been fascinated by the style. Including elements of Outsider and Folk art, the museum defines visionary art as "art produced by self-taught individuals, usually without formal training, whose works arise from an innate personal vision that revels foremost in the creative act itself." And we've found some stellar examples here at Revivals. We're showcasing a piece by valley artist Christopher Michael, who passed away in 2018. His pieces are vibrant, aggressive, and explode off the canvas. Leonard Jones is an artist based in extremely rural Georgia who use house paint and brushes to create works on wood scraps and roofing tin. Both pieces are incredibly special and true Revivals's treasures.
